PHP Markdown has a small problem with the way WordPress processes text, which I noticed in the upcoming WordPress flagship theme Twenty Thirteen.
Wondering if the issue could be fixed on PHP Markdown's end, I shared a small bug report with the author: https://github.com/michelf/php-markdown/issues/73 (I described the issue in detail there, please take a look.)
The issue persists with the plugin too (obviously, as it uses PHP Markdown). Any idea as to how this can be fixed?
